Description: Commissioned by Manhattan Chorale Ensemble, Tom Cunningham, conductor; performed at Columbia University, New York City. Text: portions of psalms and a passage from Micah that speak of peace and forgiveness. In composing this work, I realized that a far more difficult question (and perhaps more deeply personal) than that of asking God to forgive us is “Can we forgive God”?
